Less is More Challenge - Week 181 'Singin in the Rain'

You know what I've realized lately??? I was going back through my earlier blog posts and it dawned on me that 'I'm a Stamper'! I hardly use paper anymore (although I love it and have PILES of it). I never thought I would enjoy stamps so much but can't get enough of them. They are a bit like shoes, you can never have too many!

Well, last night at 11pm I was just going to chill and catch up with tv but a card idea wouldn't leave me alone. The Less is More Challenge has a song for their theme this week 'Singin in the Rain'. I adore Gene Kelly and his dancing feet. He is an amazing dancer and I (like everyone else) love the scene of him dancing in the rain.

I just couldn't help myself making a colourful and loving shower of rain. And a perfect sentiment, all for you Gene Kelly!!

The cloud is unfortunately second-hand so I don't know the brand. The heart is from Lawn Fawn 'Peace Joy Love' (as I've lost my two other little heart stamps....doh!). The sentiment is from Altenew 'Sohcahtoa'.

I'm also going to link this to the challenge at CASology - Week 105 where their cue word is:
 I was thinking about Gene dancing around, rain running down that smiling face of his, dancing his heart out! Its something that I still do with the kids in our gumboots (not quite as glamorous but just as fun!!). This is my second entry.

Nearly dinnertime. One more day and its the weekend. I thought once the kids went back to school this week I might have some quiet time to create during the day....what was I thinking! Looks like midnight crafting again tonight....

Take care
